We’re Spreading Out!
We’re committed to serving missionaries wherever they are. In line with this effort we’ve now reached out to www.preparetoserve.com. They, like us, are focused on having missionaries ready when they leave to serve. There’s much more to it than simply having all the supplies and with Prepare to Serve much more of that preparation is possible in one place.
When preparing for a mission the missionary, friends, and family want to know as much as they can about where they’re going. On the website there are many resources that make that possible. There’s basic information such as mission contact information and maps. Additionally, they’ve posted terrific videos about the weather, places, and culture of each mission. For example here (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLo6WmFbBTUezZZFfmXMnN83mA-QPy971o) is a video playlist describing the climate in the Spain Barcelona Mission. The site also provides links to social media groups related to each mission so you can contact those that have already been there.
Among the most exciting features on the website are blogs and interviews. Here (http://preparetoserve.com/philippines-cebu-east-mission/#blogs) you can find several blogs from missionaries that have served or are currently serving in the Philippines Cebu East Mission where they recount their incredible experiences. Here (http://preparetoserve.com/indiana-indianapolis-mission/#interviews) you’ll find interviews with returned missionaries who served in the Indiana Indianapolis Mission as they discuss what Indiana’s like as well as what they learned, ate, and felt during their missions.
